I'm building a Python application and don't want to force my clients to install Python and modules. I also want to make my application closed-source.

So, is there a way to compile Python scripts to standalone executables?

You can try using PyInstaller to package Python programs as standalone executables. It'll works on Windows, Linux, and Mac.

PyInstaller Quickstart

Try to Install PyInstaller from PyPI:

pip install pyinstaller

Now, go to your program’s directory and run:


This will generate the bundle in a subdirectory called dist.

You can use py2exe as already answered and use cython to convert your key .py files in .pyc, C compiled files, like .dll on Windows and .so on Linux, much harder to revert than common .pyo and .pyc files and also gain in performance.
